This is Ground Control to…

Major Tom Sunita Williams

Take a tour through the International Space Station with Astronaut Sunita Williams. Check out the sleeping birth, the “kitchen”, the labs (oh yeah, and the toilet. You know you want to see it!).

The bed was of particular interest to me. Because they are weightless, there’s no perception of up or down, standing or lying. I would have thought they would devise a weighted blanket to give you that snuggly bed feeling. But no.

I also found it strange how they made no attempt to add warmth to the interior design. Just adding color to some of the interior panels would have made a difference. It makes me wonder about the mental health of an astronaut and the thinking of the design team. Enough thinking. Watch!
